Find your Fit Activity of the Day: Instant Cold!
Outcome: To educate students about the important role body movement plays in regulating your body temperature while walking across Nepal.
Materials: 30 tennis balls
Setup: Ensure all 30 balls are in adequate condition and can easily bounce.
Rules and procedures: Students can either work as an entire class or the educator may choose to divide the class in half depending on the number of students.
The teacher must select a designated playing area such as the basketball court or a volleyball court on a gymnasium floor. This will be referred to as “the windward side” of the mountain. Once the group gathers in “the windward side” of the mountain, the group scrambles to keep the tennis balls from coming to a complete stop. If the tennis ball is seen to stop moving, the teacher must yell, “Cold Hikers, Cold Hikers, 1,2,3,4,5” and if they are able to complete the entire phrase, the game stops. If the game stops, the teacher can restart the activity.
Throughout the activity the teacher will announce the weather conditions that are occurring on the windward side of the mountain. This will allow the learners to make connections to material they are currently studying in science and geography classes!
